In this lesson, you’ll see how the initial surface will affect the accretion layers as I introduce the dry brush accretion encaustic painting method.
If you have a question or comment you can add it at the bottom of the page.
This is lesson 3 in the Encaustic Accretion course. It is set as open for anyone to view, the rest of the lessons in the course are for registered students only. If you aren’t enrolled, you can purchase the full course until December 31st for the Early Bird Rate of $57 CAD.
Encaustic Accretion – Let’s start creating texture
ac·cre·tion – əˈkrēSH(ə)n is the process of growth by a gradual buildup of layers
The molten wax starts to cool on your brush. And as you drag it across the painting surface brushstrokes are going to get left behind. As you repeat that process, the wax is going to start building up in the texture that was left by the previous brush strokes. Fusing will reheat the wax and ensure that it adheres well to the substrate and previous painting layers. If you fuse gently, the texture of the brush strokes will remain.
